In this thesis we will discuss the concept of diversification as a means of strengthening a software population. More specifically, we will study the impact the creation of a diverse software population has on the applicability of automated software attacks. Diversity is a relatively unexplored area in the field of computer security, but has great potential for the field of software security. Numerous automated attacks intrinsically assume total homogeneity within specific software… CONTINUE READING
